NOTE 1:                      BASIS OF PRESENTATION

a.           Company:

Arotech Corporation (“Arotech”) and its wholly-owned subsidiaries (the “Company”) provide defense and security products for the military, law enforcement and homeland security markets, including multimedia interactive simulators/trainers, lightweight vehicle armoring, and advanced zinc-air and lithium batteries and chargers. The Company operates primarily through its wholly-owned subsidiaries FAAC Incorporated (“FAAC”), based in Ann Arbor, Michigan; MDT Protective Industries, Ltd. (“MDT”), based in Lod, Israel; MDT Armor Corporation (“MDT Armor”), based in Auburn, Alabama; Electric Fuel Battery Corporation (“EFB”), based in Auburn, Alabama; Electric Fuel Ltd. (“EFL”), based in Beit Shemesh, Israel, which the Company merged into its Epsilor subsidiary in July 2011; and Epsilor-EFL Ltd. (formerly Epsilor Electronic Industries, Ltd.) (“Epsilor”), based in Dimona, Israel. The Company’s former subsidiary Armour of America Incorporated (“AoA”) has been merged into MDT Armor. Additionally, IES Interactive Training (“IES”), and Realtime Technologies (“RTI”) were merged with FAAC to create Arotech’s Training and Simulation Division (“ATSD”).

b.           Basis of presentation:

The accompanying interim condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared by Arotech Corporation in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles for interim financial information, with the instructions to Form 10-Q and with Article 10 of Regulation S-X, and include the accounts of Arotech Corporation and its subsidiaries. Certain information and footnote disclosures, normally included in complete financial statements prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, have been condensed or omitted. In the opinion of the Company, the unaudited financial statements reflect all adjustments (consisting only of normal recurring adjustments) necessary for a fair presentation of its financial position at June 30, 2011, its operating results for the six- and three-month periods ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, and its cash flow for the six-month periods ended June 30, 2011 and 2010.

The results of operations for the six and three months ended June 30, 2011 are not necessarily indicative of results that may be expected for any other interim period or for the full fiscal year ending December 31, 2011.

The balance sheet at December 31, 2010 has been derived from the audited financial statements at that date but does not include all the information and footnotes required by generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements. These condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2010.

c.           Accounting for stock-based compensation:

For the six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, the compensation expense recorded related to restricted stock units and restricted shares was $132,919 and $302,096, respectively, all of which was for restricted stock units and restricted shares. The remaining total compensation cost related to non-vested stock options and non-vested restricted share awards not yet recognized in the income statement as of June 30, 2011 was $356,720, all of which was for restricted stock units and restricted shares. The weighted average period over which this compensation cost is expected to be recognized is approximately one and one-half years. Income tax expense was not impacted since the Company is in a net operating loss position. There were no new options issued in the first six months of 2011 and no options were exercised in the first six months of 2011. The Company’s directors received their annual restricted stock grants on April 1, 2011 in accordance with the terms of the directors’ stock compensation plan. Additionally, the corporate officers received their annual restricted stock grants on April 25, 2011.

d.           Reclassification:

Certain comparative data in these financial statements may have been reclassified to conform to the current year’s presentation.

e.           Anti-dilutive shares for EPS calculation:

All outstanding stock options, non-vested restricted stock units and restricted stock along with the warrants have been excluded from the calculation of the diluted net loss per share for 2011 because all such securities are anti-dilutive.  The Company has also excluded all outstanding stock options along with the warrants that are below market value for the calculation of the diluted net income per share for 2010. Additionally, the Company has excluded any restricted shares that will never vest under the current program. The total weighted average number of shares excluded from the calculations of diluted net income (loss) per share for the six-month periods ended June 30, 2011 and 2010 were 1,440,949 and 778,860, respectively.
